I need some help and I think all of you just might be able to help me.

I want to be able to look in the Windows Registry and tell if certain applications are installed.

For example:
When spybot is installed it places a registry key in 1 of 2 places:
-- "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Safer Networking Limited\SpybotSnD" OR
-- "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Safer Networking Limited\SpybotSnD"

To make things even nicer - Spybot includes a "Path" value at that key which tells me exactly where spybot is installed.

I want to know the same information for a handful of other applications.
- CCleaner
- Malware Antibytes
- Norton
- McAfee
- Kaspersky
- Avast!
- Eset Nod32
- Comodo
- Panda Anti-Virus
- BitDefender
- Spy Sweeper

I figure most of you guys probably have these memorized so I thought I'd ask.

Are you guys up for the challenge?
